Elon Musk confirmed Friday that he rejected operating with Bill Gates on climate alternatives thru textual content due to the fact the Microsoft co-founder was shorting Tesla.

Elon Musk showed Friday that he rejected operating with Bill Gates on climate alternate thru text due to the fact the Microsoft co-founder was shorting Tesla.

In the texts, the 2 billionaires seem set to meet someplace before Musk asks Gates if he still has a “half of billion greenbacks brief position in opposition to Tesla.”

Gates replies, “Sorry to say I haven’t closed it yet,” adding in another text: “I would like to discuss philanthropy possibilities.”

Musk replies that he can’t take Gates’ philanthropy on climate change “seriously when you have a massive short position against Tesla, the company doing the most to solve climate change.”

The SpaceX billionaire on Friday night showed the veracity of a screenshot of the text trade published by @WholeMarsBlog who wrote “No idea if this is real lol” and asked Musk approximately it.

“Yeah,” Musk answered, “but I didn’t leak it to NYT. They must have got it through friends of friends. I heard from multiple people at TED that Gates still had half-billion short against Tesla, which is why I asked him, so it’s not exactly top secret.”

Shorting approach is that an investor borrows inventory with the assumption that it will cross down, profiting them.

Musk also trolled Gates with a vulgar tweet Friday comparing a photo of the Seattleite to a pregnant man emoji.
